Y'Y V j • MELBOURNE, Friday. k The Victorian Wheat Commission .report was issued to-day. The evi dence, the Commissioners stated, showed an undercurrent of despair often indignantly expresssed concern ing "the exactions of the present sys tem upon farmers and farmers' labor and capital. Farmers ~"Enow they don't get a square deal along the line of the wheat's progress to "the bak eries, and it is a very disturbing ques tion with progressive farmers whether wheat growing pays in Australia un assisted by other branches of hus bandry. farmers' profits are always slender, and bag handling has reduc ed them still further. The Commis sion estimated that a saving of a penny per bushel could be effected by bulk handling, and recommended that bulk handling on the Canadian system be introduced.

Federal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913
Federal Elections. The latest about the elections is that Burns (Labor) has been practi cally returned for lllawarra by 154, with only 300 abseno votes to count. At Ballarat McGratii (Labor) beat McKay by 1G2 votoa. The state of parties now ib :—Lib eral 38, Labor 37. The position of. parties in the House of Representatives now practically depends upon Hume, where 2800 absentee votes are yet to be counted. In the Senate, Liberals still lead in New South Wales by a substantial majority, but in Victoria it is a close run between Liberals and Laborites the latter having aslightlead. West Australia, Queensland and Tasmania will evidently all return Labor. The Daily News of Monday, states that there are about 2800 absentee votes for the Hume yet to be counted. Apparently the Hume Beturning Officer is not in a big hurry. Such dilatoriness is not fair to either can didate. At Ballarat, according to 11. A. Johnston in the Argus, one man huB boasted that be voted 19 times.
